Bridgend overnight 15May14 (MV)

We trapped 16 species overnight in our garden:- Light Brown Apple moth, Twenty-plumed moth, Red Twin-spot Carpet, Small Phoenix, Garden Carpet, Brimstone, Pale Tussock, Heart & Dart, Shuttle-shaped Dart, Flame Shoulder, Bright-line Brown-eye, Angle Shades and Treble Lines. Also a very plain, worn looking individual - photo attached - any ideas? All we can think of is a small dark worn Dark Arches.

I also took a walk out to the Kenfig rivermouth this morning and noted 25+ Little Blue, 5+ Common Blue, 20+ Small Heath, 3 Orange Tip, 6+ Wall, 1 Peacock, 10+ Green-veined White and 3 Cinnabar Moth.


  1. It's the dark form of Clouded-bordered Brindle.

  2. Ta, should have spotted that one, for some reason it foxed us both! To redeem ourselves, my daughter Holly and I found a nice Vine's Rustic later this evening.
